What do you mean when you say they are listening to your conversation?Is there a video being recorded of what is going on at the bar.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes there is but they are recording your conversation on the same camera that taking the video of you
Expert:  Debra replied 1 year ago.
There is no reasonable expectation of privacy in a bar so this would not be considered an offence.When you are in the public there is not the same level of protection of your privacy rights. So while they could not place a bug under the table to record a conversation to videotape the full bar for security reasons would not be an offence.Do you see what I mean?
